Is it equivalent? I was reluctant to split the "in body" mode in two, with 
one mode basically just forwarding everything to the other mode, so I 
didn't really check to see if it would have worked. For example, how would 
you handle the switch to and from the "in CDATA" mode, without yet another 
way of keeping track which mode we came from?
